McLaren announces full range will be hybrid by 2025

0 Comments Mc Laren

McLaren Automotive announced a new $1.6 billion Track25 business plan at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Thursday, a road map of its future models and technology development.

In all, the increased offer in the McLaren catalog is hoped to allow the builder to produce at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking 6,000 auto each year, 75 percent more than today.

It's not the first time McLaren has talked about its plans for electrification. This updated version adds a number of new milestones, however.

With its Rotherham facility soon to be up and running, McLaren Automotive has upped its production targets to reach 6,000 mid-engined sportscars and supercars a year by 2025.

Among the milestones set by the Track25 roadmap is to ensure that McLaren's entire sports auto and supercar range will feature hybrid power within the next seven years, among them a new Ultimate Series that will succeed the petrol-electric P1. In fact, the automaker says, it'll be nearly a 75-percent increase over current numbers. Soon, McLaren will bring out yet another sports vehicle and it will act as their response to an iconic exotic - the Ferrari 488 GTB.

The first vehicle to introduce the car-maker's next-generation hybrid powertrain is thought to be the replacement for the 570S that's due in 2020, although despite its claim of transition to a hybrid brand, it's thought Ultimate Series models like the recently introduced Senna could remain purely combustion enginepowered in a bid to satisfy purists.

The original P1 may have been a hybrid, but it was no Prius. Together, they delivered 727 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque, for a 0-62 miles per hour time of 2.8 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 217 miles per hour. The automaker is also talking about a new charging system, too.

The new McLaren won't be a match for the 675LT in terms of straight line speed, but it will be what the company describes as "a margin faster" than the 675LT on certain tracks due to the better cornering capability of the 600LT.

It's not the only technological push, mind.

New features are also being launched to improve the owning of a McLaren including the introduction of over the air software updates, so owners can benefit from updates from home. There'll be "enhanced cyber protection" too, reflecting the growing fears industry-wide about the safety of cars that are perpetually online.
